Storage suppliers pass conformance tests


Storage suppliers pass conformance tests

Fourteen storage suppliers have passed conformance tests for the Storage Networking Industry Association's (SNIA) System Management Interface scheme (SMI-S).

SMI-S, the storage industry's implementation of CIM (Common Information Model) and WBEM (Web-Based Enterprise Management), is a set of management interfaces designed to make it easier for storage hardware and management software from different suppliers to work together.

The conformance test includes a storage array profile and seven sub-profiles, including features for volume creation and LUN masking (hiding servers).

The suppliers with products which passed were Brocade Communications Systems, Dell, EMC, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, LSI Logic Storage Systems, McData, Network Appliance, Silicon Graphics, Storage Technology and Sun Microsystems.
